Huntingdonshire Philharmonic join forces with world class pianist
5 April 2011
The orchestra of the Huntingdonshire Philharmonic Society will be presenting their next concert at Hinchingbrooke Performing Arts Centre on Saturday 7th May.
Concert–goers will have the opportunity to hear the world class pianist Masayuki Tayama perform the much loved Brahms Piano Concerto No 2.
Fans of Masa will remember the concert he gave with the orchestra in 2008 when he delighted audiences with his interpretation of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No 2.
Brahms completed his second piano concerto in 1881. Unlike his first, it was met with popular and critical approval and soon became part of the standard repertoire.
‘A distinguished work of art, in which thought and feeling move in noble harmony’ was how it was described at the time and to this day audiences love its lyricism, grace and power.
The orchestra will also be performing Sibelius’ 5th Symphony under the baton of Musical Director Adrian Brown.
The first version of the fifth symphony was performed in Helsinki on the composer's 50th birthday in 1915 and it achieved enormous and immediate success. The work’s splendour and mastery gives no hint of the years of hard decision-making that went into it’s creation.
The concert begins at 7.30pm and tickets are available from email@example.com or by calling 07940 785980.
